Heath Ogawa ’19: All-American in 1-meter diving

Lake Forest College diver Heath Ogawa ’19 placed eighth off the 1-meter board at the NCAA Division III Championship Meet and was named All-American.

The top eight finishers in each event are named All-American and Ogawa’s eighth-place finish is the best by a diver in the Forester men’s team’s history and the best by a Lake Forest male in any event since Dan Tarkowski ’95 was seventh in the 100-freestyle in 1995.

Ogawa posted a score of 448.15 points in the March 18 1-meter diving trials, good for seventh place in the 24-diver field and a spot in the evening finals. He finished with 419.35 points in the finals and placed eighth.

Including his 13th-place finish in the March 16 3-meter competition, Ogawa earned 15 team points for Lake Forest, which places the team tied-for-34th at the meet with the March 20 events remaining.
